Are we civilised?

Yes, often we can cure cancer. Yes, we can take care of the elderly. Yes, handicapped need not just die anymore. Yes, there is plenty of food for everyone (it's just not properly distributed) and yes, we've been to the moon. And back.

And yes, dead bodies of children are being used in political games of blaming, power, shouting, money and pointing fingers. So I ask you this:

are we really that civilised?

Furthermore: people love games. People love to win.
But winning at the expense of little that civilised?

Is it civilised to force married women to cover their hair? These extremely religious men (click) seem to think so.
